we heard it, there were 2 loud bangs, one sounded a bit further away than the other but my husband saw something in the air after the second one and it looked to be coming from the direction of the canal

we thought it was gun shots initially,but the noise shook our windows too and had people running outside to see what it was.We had a similar noise 2 weeks ago and a lampost exploded....yes exploded,caught fire and we had the fire brigade out most of the night,causing a loss of power to at least 4 houses and all the electrical items in the houses were blown.

It was some sort of flare or similar. The went off just behind the new houses on the old gasworks and were airborne when the exploded.

maybe someone on a boat set off a distress flare, would not have thought that would make such a loud bang, but you are right something went up into the air. very mysterious!

It was the other side of the houses near gasworks lane or the farm behind. Not a boat

I saw massive flames coming either from a farm house/building or just behind it from up Brown Bank Lane, followed by plumes of smoke. It was difficult to tell exactly what was on fire from the distance I was at, but the flames did look huge.
